Bluespotts are a good choice then. Another alternative would be bandeds. I
find bandeds less shy and easier to get on prepared foods, if this is even
an issue. In general, most people find the bluespotts more attractive, they
do have larger spangles. But the bandeds more robust body and variance in
the color of the spangles is a plus as well. Both of these fish will also
relish fry of other fish, if you have a soucre for culled guppies or such.

I have not had much luck with earth worm cultures, but white worms and
grindals are easy to culture. Even if these small cultures do go bad and
smell, its not that bad. More like really stale bread smell. Even though, it
would take a lot of white worms to feed a small group of hungry blues. I
generally hit the bait shops weekly and plan on ordering from worm farms in
the near future.
